Adrian Murphy: Exercises in Engagement: asking audiences about anthropology collections

  1. 1. Questions asked to the User Questions asked to the Curator Questions asked to the Maker what do you use it for why is this object in this particular area of the museum? what is it made out of? what is it and how would you use it? is it a adults glove that has been turned into a toy for children slaves where was this found? What purpose does this serve to you? Do you think the use of iPads genuinely improves the experience and wonder of the museum? why do you use a iPad lol so funny what do u use it for and how because to me it looks like a peace sign or a good luck charm or a craft to keep bad spirits away?! this IPad doesn't even let you find out the information. time it gets fixed!! what's the point why do people do juju in Africa and Nigeria? by. Are items like this the origin of street hand gestures today (e.g. the 'yo' gesture which is the same as that on this item? How old is this object? it looks like an elephant and just a glove is it from Peru? have seen similar things are the mummy's in the African world gallery real? first of all if its broken why do you show it like what why is the wrist tightly bound together? does the red fabric near the wrist coming out from the hand represent blood ? Why is the hand showing those particular fingers? we would like more information on how the horniman obtained artefacts in this exhibition and if, and how, it implicates itself in such atrocities as the looting of the Benin palace. thanks. Does it come from Italy, as it looks like a rude gesture I once saw there. can you provide a bigger screen and instructions so that older people can use this more easily? is it a we will rock u sign #Yolo the website information screen is too busy- can you make it simpler? what is this this is DOPE what is it made from? why did you make it and do you think that this creation will be an advantage to something or someone ? do you make them all to look the same? is it blessed ? when did you make this piece and have you made any other pieces of art? when did you make it? what is it made from and how long did it take to make? what OSA animal mean does this object have a specific trait such as it resembles death ect what is this and why did you make it. Also what is it meant for and how do you use it? what is the function f this object? when and where was it made? Where can I buy one? Can you make one for me? It would look amazing on my fireplace. :)
  2. 2. must have been a very big sheep inside there was a hat this is that hat!!!!! it's beautiful I think that this bowl is very interesting and I would like to learn more about it. I also think that it is very pretty. it could be some piece of treasure from a tribe a long time ago I think it's amazing people from cultures all around the world have put so much time and resources into creating such artistic objects a crazy and beautiful bowl i think it is a helmet to cover your ears when its noisy. or rainy. hug-rig galgani made by aardvarks in tha antarctic i think it is very intresting and a real part of canadian culture it is a wonderfull american object. i think it is great it is lovely jubbly it is a bronze stupid thing i love it, I saw more Tlingit pieces at the Frieze Art Fair this year in Regents Park (Masters tent) ... i think there was a spoon that was quite a similar design you should ask an anthropolgist specialising in this. it might not b as special as you think! maybe things like this are being sold in souvenir shops all over North America it's sick bruv in it this is very fasinating ithink it is a bowl of some sort it is pretty because of the carvings and eyes of shell.i think it's quite heavy. to me i think it is a well carved hellmet a guy got hit by a car landed on a box and it looks like a crossover between a bowl and a spiritual mask.! i have heard of lots of cultures that prize marine mammal oil- see Philip H(?) 'Leviathan' I think it is a bowl made in the Indian warrior time period probably made from wood or a type of animal. it is like the eyes of a type of wolf. the ipads are a waste of money they do not tell you what it is. what is it?
